The microstructure and shape memory behavior of Ti-rich Ti-Ni melt-spun ribbons with various Ni-contents were investigated. Ti-xNi(x=40~48at%) ribbons were fabricated by the melt-spinning method at the rotation speed of 5000rpm. They were heat-treated at 1073K for 3.6ks. It was found that the Ti-40at%Ni as-spun ribbon exhibited almost complete amorphous structure, while the specimen with more Ni-content, such as 48at%Ni ribbon exhibited the coexistence of amorphous and crystalline structures. It was also found that the maximum shape recovery strain increased with increasing Ni-content. The Ti-40at%Ni ribbon was very brittle because of many Ti2Ni precipitates formed.
